Allen Robinson is set to hit the open market. These five teams would love to have him.
One thing that shouldn’t be difficult to see is Allen Robinson’s role with the offense. The Pro Bowl wide receiver is coming off his best season in Chicago in which he tallied 102 catches for 1,250 yards and six touchdowns. Now, there’s a chance that Robinson wants out.
As NFL free agency begins, a handful of teams will need a wide receiver. All that matters now is the asking price, one that Robinson has earned following stints with Mitchell Trubisky, Blake Bortles and Christian Hackenberg. There’s also “fit” to which franchise best plays to the 27-year-old skills set.
After that, winning will always be important.
Even in a deep free agent class of wide receivers, Robinson might be the best. There’s so much untapped potential that’s been held back by poor quarterback play. These teams though might be the best when it comes to showing off his skill-set.
Five possible landing spots for Allen Robinson in NFL free agency
Just because Robinson doesn’t like the situation doesn’t mean he won’t listen to the offer. The Bears have the pieces to be good in the future with another quarterback. They also would have had their shot to win on Sunday with a different coach calling the plays.
Another screen or slant? Sign Robinson up Matt Nagy.
Darnell Mooney has proven to be a consistent vertical threat. It’s a loaded wide receiver class to replace Anthony Miller in the slot. Even Riley Ridley should be given a chance to earn first-team reps next season. What the Bears need is a possession receiver to keep moving the chains on first down.
Isn’t that what Robinson already does?
Ryan Pace or not, the GM must come to terms with Robinson for a successful 2021 campaign. Keeping him hides the glaring issues at quarterback and promises whoever is under center a bonafide stud in the open field.
